for international students in Birmingham

Join Birmingham Connection to start making friends in Birmingham, whether you already here or still back home.

We will introduce you to local people who will connect with you online and then meet you in person when you come to the UK. They will be happy to support you during your time in Birmingham. You can ask them any questions you like, and they will usually be very interested in your own culture and experiences too.

All those in the Birmingham Connection scheme are trusted members of local churches.  Some are single, some are married, some are families. They enjoy welcoming international students to our city. Birmingham Connection is free of charge and is open to all international students and academics at Birmingham’s universities.
